    I have been working at First Derivatives full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There are a lot of pros for this company - I feel that it has been massively put down in some of these reviews by current employees. Expenses: The expenses package is very generous. You get accommodation, food and travel paid for during your working week. Your flight and transfer costs are also absorbed by the company.

    Cons

    The only con I can list is that the HR/Accommodation team need some more experienced members. It seems that there is a lot of placement students and not enough experienced hires - which can lead to confusion or error in some respects.

    Advice to Management

    Extensive training for new HR members so that the company can continue to grow globally. A few extra members of staff in this department would be helpful also - this would ensure smooth operations between departments.

    Pros

    Excellent Capital Market Training Programme (CMTP) which gives graduates a great insight in to all aspects within the tech and finance industry. Very helpful and accomodating HR and staff providing great support to graduates from day 1. Great social events on a monthly basis which create a good sense of team bonding between all staff.

    Cons

    Have not experienced any cons to date! Company are always constantly looking for feedback to improve all aspects of employee well being.

    Advice to Management

    Try to increase the female to male ratio as it is currently predominately male around the offices.
